The electrical device used by the police throughout the film to disable the cars is non-existent in reality. It was just made up by the creators of the film to add more excitement. See more »
Before they drag race the muscle cars for pink slips, Brian tells Rome "there's no way we can beat these guys straight up" and refers to the Yenko Camaro having a 0-60 of 5 sec flat. The Lancer Evo Brian is driving has a stock 0-60 of 4.7 sec and is modified. Being a tuner enthusiast, Brian surely would know this. See more »

2 Fast 2 Furious isn't quite as good as the first film but it's still a really good movie in its own right. The cast was great once again with Paul Walker returning to his role as Brian O'Connor and Tyrese Gibson and Eva Mendes adding new character dynamics. Tyrese in particular was great. If there's one thing the first film lacked it's that there wasn't much humor. It was a very serious film and while that's great, Tyrese's character, Roman Pearce, added some great laughs at some unexpected moments. The cinematic effects were much better in this film also. The only negatives were that some of the action sequences were a little overboard (Dukes of Hazard jump for example) and the dialogue had too much street car jargon to the extent that some of it felt forced. "That Yenko will snap a speedo in 5 seconds" is an example of the type of dialogue that doesn't actually feel genuine in its placement in the film. Nonetheless, a really good movie with solid acting and great action.
